“I’m Gonna Wreck It!”

Two points to the first person who can name what movie that quote above is from!

Well obviously if you follow my IG feed, then you already know and have seen the kids fabulous one-of-a-kind costumes from the Wreck-It-Ralph movie!  No one else had these costumes and the kids were so adorably cute!  We had several candy givers say how awesome their costumes were!  Vanellope von Schweetz and Fix-It-Felix costumes were done by the amazing Diane Kile {she’s got amaze-balls sewing/creativity skills!}  That contractor belt and hammer were spot on!

Though we realistically only covered one block…the candy bags were full and the kids were on a Halloween high all the way to bedtime.  So without further ado, here are their costumes and how you can get the same look! {hopefully for less}

If I missed anything please feel free to ask me questions/comments.  Hope I’ve inspired you to be a kid again!  Homemade costumes rock!

Happy Halloween!

It’s that time again!  Halloween is finally here and the kids costumes are right down to the nitty gritty {obviously!}.  Stay tuned next week for photos of their costumes straight from their favorite movie, “It’s make your mama’s proud time”!  They were super stoked to try on their costumes! {see the sneak peak on my IG feed!}

Our first stop to get ready for Halloween is a visit to Pa’s Pumpkin Patch to tour the very, very busy patch and shoo those flies away!  My Viking guy was more concerned about waving those flies away than looking at my camera.  It was such a hot afternoon!  There were lots of jumping bounce houses and rickety rides for the kids {they kinda scared me a little!}.

I really loved the giant pumpkins everywhere, they added so much character with their different shapes and bumps!

By the way, all these oranges and yellows make it really hard to get a great shot with the colors reflecting straight onto their faces.  For once, I was happy with direct sunlight!
